Keswick launch Explorer Experience

Family day out on the Keswick Launch Explorer

Treat the family to a glorious day out in the English Lake District, exploring the tourist heartland of Keswick and climbing aboard the thrilling Keswick Launch explorer. Following a twenty-minute scenic drive from The Trout Hotel, during which you will feast your eyes upon fantastic lakeside views over Bassenthwaite lake, you will find yourself in the historical market town of Keswick. Ever bustling with tourists and family-friendly activities and attractions, as well as being home to an array of outdoor clothing and equipment shops- Keswick is a Lake District treasure never to be missed.

Sitting upon the gentle lakeshore of Derwentwater, a few minutes walk from the main town centre- The Keswick Launch Company offer a number of Lake District cruises. Perfect for families seeking an adventurous day out in the fresh air, the cruises allow passengers to hop on and off the Launch at different landing stages around the lake, giving you and the kids the freedom to explore the numerous lakeshore walks and surrounding fells.

The Lingholm Estate

What’s more, you’ll be given the chance to roam the dramatic lakeside location of the Lingholm Estate- a favorite holiday destination of Beatrix Potter. Whilst strolling aimlessly through the pretty garden paths, be sure to stop off for tea and scones at the Lingholm Kitchen Garden- credited by Beatrix Potter as her inspiration behind Mr McGregor’s Garden in her famous children’s book, “The tale of Peter Rabbit”.
